  1. Closure Rules
  2. Hours
  3. Reservations

Rinks will be closed if:

  • Temperatures are unseasonably warm and the rinks have not been able to be flooded.
  • Temperatures are 10 degrees below zero (actual temperature, not wind chill) or more and expected to remain that way. Closure may occur due to other inclement weather factors.
  • Attendant may close if weather conditions are, and are expected to remain, extreme.

Closure Conditions

  • Very cold temperatures with excessively cold wind chills. (Generally, a closure in this example would be later in the evening or possibly a weekday night - not mornings where conditions are likely to improve or the warming house may be expected to be used more during Christmas vacation or on weekends.)
  • Temperatures well above freezing. (Generally, a closure in this example would occur when water is standing over half the rink and temperatures are not expected to drop.

The Parks Supervisor will determine if the rinks are to be closed.
